❀ Crystal ✿ -  PEACE ☮ LOVE ♥ BOOKS  (crystaldc18) | 7423 comments Seven years ago, the Atargatis set off on a voyage to the Mariana Trench to film a “mockumentary” bringing to life ancient sea creatures of legend. It was lost at sea with all hands. Some have called it a hoax; others have called it a maritime tragedy.

Now, a new crew has been assembled. But this time they’re not out to entertain. Some seek to validate their life’s work. Some seek the greatest hunt of all. Some seek the truth. But for the ambitious young scientist Victoria Stewart this is a voyage to uncover the fate of the sister she lost.

Whatever the truth may be, it will only be found below the waves. But the secrets of the deep come with a price.

Farren (mmmcookies) | 357 comments Same, I could never go! I'm listening to this on audio and got to I think 28%. I'm enjoying the way the story is told and already liking it loads more than her Wayward Children series, but not a lot has happened yet. The narrator is great, but it is quite easy to get confused with all of the perspective shifts on audio.

Yeah the first quarter was definitely more filler and introduction. But damn if the story didn’t pick up immediately once they are on the water.
Ugh I have to put this down to finish something else and I keep telling myself one more chapter lol. So worried, scared but also so damn curious..... (view spoiler)


Farren (mmmcookies) | 357 comments I had to pause this one for another book and totally agree, it was almost painful to do so (especially since I'm not even enjoying the other book!)


❀ Crystal ✿ -  PEACE ☮ LOVE ♥ BOOKS  (crystaldc18) | 7423 comments Well in that case know you’re not alone lol I honestly was not expecting to get into this one so much. Now that the action has started I’m all in....

I should be finishing up the audiobook tomorrow, and I'm excited to see which characters (if any) survive and make it home. And if they have been making sure all of their evidence is backed up this time!

I have her book Feed checked out from the library right now too, which I'm pretty excited for since I definitely prefer her horror titles over her general fantasy. And I like how she does them all almost documentary style.

I don't know how I missed your reply Farren, sorry about that...

(view spoiler)

Feel free to let me know how you enjoy the prequel and Feed. I have that on my TBR and now that I know this author wrote it I really do want to read it eventually.


Farren (mmmcookies) | 357 comments Seanan McGuire tends to continue series after they were supposed to end so maybe one day she will get around to writing a sequel. I started Feed on audio and it was pretty fun but nowhere near as interesting and gripping as this one. I had to put it on pause because I had other library books expiring soon though.


❀ Crystal ✿ -  PEACE ☮ LOVE ♥ BOOKS  (crystaldc18) | 7423 comments Well that stinks, that you’re not liking it that much. Maybe this was her masterpiece and everything else won’t measure up.

Did you read the prequel novella before this? I own it but did not yet but apparently it's the story of the original crew that went out and was killed.

Jay (that_thing) hey, so the plan for this buddy read to is read two "zones" every two weeks (except this week since we're already half way through) and we'll discuss them on Saturday. so here's the gameplan:
Zone 1: 9th
Zone 2 + 3: 16th
Zone 4+ 5: 23rd
Zone 6: 30th (which is also the live show on paperbackdreams youtube channel where they'll be discussing the book, if you wanna watch that too!)
can't wait to hear ya'll thoughts


Karen Barber | 10001 comments Sorry to be a bit late starting this one. How are you finding it so far?


Karen Barber | 10001 comments Have got a bit behind, but am chipping away with this. Opening immediately got me curious - but it seems like a read to really have to focus on.


message 45: by Jay (new) - rated it 4 stars

Jay (that_thing) totally, I found the opening super intriguing, got me hooked (ha fish puns, mermaids...) right away.

Yeah! (view spoiler)


Karen Barber | 10001 comments Up to p93 - zone 1. Fairly quickly establishes what I assume will be our key players and their motivation for being part of this experience. Intriguing start, though it’s rather slow in terms of plot.


Karen Barber | 10001 comments Zone two focuses on the water/initial stages of the journey. Horrible sense of inevitability to this, and by the end I’m admitting to worrying about what is going to happen when the sun goes down!


Karen Barber | 10001 comments Zone three...talk about cranking up the pace! I don’t think I could make myself pause here - it’s a lot more engaging than I thought it would be. The events/discussion forces us to confront some rather unpalatable truths about mankind.
